I own both the P and the S, and I can vouch that both are excellent products. I'd go so far as to say they've changed my life because I work with a ton of paper and don't have a ton of space. Here are my recommendations. If only one of these statements applies to you, or all the statements that apply to you point toward the same scanner, then your choice is easy. If more than one statement applies to you and points you toward different scanners, then it's a bit trickier.
You don't have a program that will organize and modify PDFs. The software that comes with the Canon is horrible, whereas the Fujitsu provides a nice file manager program. As mentioned above, the software that comes with the Canon is horrible, whereas the Fujitsu provides a nice OCR program. More on the horrible Canon software later. It has a great little slot just for business cards. See 1b. You have a USB 3. If you have a USB 3. The Canon doesn't come with a power adapter. You have to buy that separately.

You can scan with just one free USB 2. You have two free USB ports 2. You can do high-speed scanning by plugging into both USB 2.
You don't need a power adapter and don't have one unless you buy it separately. You have one free USB 2. The scanning will be slow, but you still can scan with just one USB 2. If you don't have a free outlet, you can't scan at all with the Fujitsu. You're in a situation in which you're on a laptop but don't have the laptop charger, but you do have an extra outlet.
The Canon will eat up all your laptop battery because it's not getting power from anywhere else. You want to scan a stack of legal-size paper or heavier paper. The pull-out easel--I don't know if that's the term--on the Canon is way flimsy, and legal paper doesn't go in as straight as it does with the Fujitsu. You want to travel a lot with this scanner. The Canon is smaller and more portable. Note, however, that when the easel is pulled out, the footprint on the desk is about the same because the easel stands up straighter on the Fujitsu.
You want a scanner that will last. Fujitsu at least ties with Canon and may be better. I haven't used the Canon enough to test its durability, but I've scanned well over 15, pages on the Fujitsu, and it's still going strong. It's not like I've been particularly careful with the Fujitsu; many times I've accidentally forgotten to pull out staples, have yanked the paper halfway through a scan after realizing that I wasn't supposed to scan it, etc.
Perhaps the Canon is just as durable, but if you don't want to take that risk, then I recommend the Fujitsu. So that's a decision guide. Since this review is of the Canon scanner, here are some additional comments about it.

I have Windows 7. First, I strongly recommend reading both the User's Manual printed in the box and the Reference Guide on the Canon website. I find it odd that they give you a printed copy of one but not the other, considering that the Reference Guide is just as important, if not more so, than the User's Manual. I don't find either manual particularly clearly written, though. As I mentioned above, the Canon software is horrible. If you want to install the software, do a System Restore first because you may regret the software installation; I did. I ended up removing all the software because it was such a pain in the butt.
The Caputure OnTouch software didn't detect when I plugged in the scanner, nor when I pressed the button. The PaperPort program is not only confusing but annoying. You're bugged to register with the software company every single time. There's no option for it to stop bugging you. The software sets itself to Auto Start. It tried to auto-update but failed. Instead, use the software that's stored in the scanner itself.
It's described confusingly in the manual; it's actually much simpler. Set "Enable continuous scanning" to On and "Full auto mode" to Off. This gives you the ability to do most scanning functions without the nuisance of the software. You can choose your destination folder, but the "Save in folder" box is too short and doesn't show file trees. Unless you save everything to the desktop or to the main Documents folder, you almost always have to click Browse.
It doesn't sound like a big deal, but trust me, it gets very annoying. While I've ended the review on a negative note, I really think this is a great product. In fact, I bought another one as a gift for an accountant friend.
I'm merely trying to point out the one big downside to the Canon that you should be aware of. Full disclosure: I received a test model for review but was not otherwise compensated. As mentioned above, I liked this product enough to buy another one for a friend, so my 5-star rating reflects my true opinion. Because I have a test model, it's possible that the software problems described do not apply to non-test models.
Here's the "sleeper" among personal scanners. Those boxes of documents, love letters, photographs from both my wife's family and mine have weighed on my mind for almost 20 years. In fact, 15 years ago I ordered a Visioneer portable scanner with the intention of getting a load off my mind and out of the attic. The device proved buggy, partially effective and extremely time-consuming, leading to my aborting the project and selling the scanner.
But in the past several months, the regular television commercials for Neato portable scanners renewed my interest. After reading some of the reviews for Neato portables, I questioned whether the technology had advanced far since my first Visioneer. But before abandoning the project a second time I investigated other possibilities, with the following findings: You can spend several dollars on one of many scan "apps," designed to work with the camera of an iPhone or iPod good for a couple of documents, maybe. These deserve consideration from users who plan to move about and travel, taking the scanner with them on business trips, etc.
But besides size and weight, be sure to to note the presence or absence of features like duplex printing, drivers, automatic feed. But wait! Document size: Feeder Capacity.
